I'd like to know how to calculate when to take a hpt, since I don't have AF yet. So far I haven't O'd, but I've been testing monthly just in case, esp. since my body seems to be getting ready more each month. Last week I noted days on which I had strong O-type cramping, followed by days of EWCM, and the days we BD'd. My question is, which symptom actually is a better indicator of O - the cramping, or EWCM? Since I have to pick a hypothetical O date from which to begin the 2ww, I'm wondering if I go w/ the earlier cramping days or the later EWCM days?
We are so much alike! I would go with the EWCM. I'd count 2 weeks from when you last had it. I've decided that I can't trust my body's symptoms anymore though because I keep reading into things and then nothing happens. So I'll pick up some dollar store tests and test the 1st and 15th of every month or something.
